When I was a kid, my family had a well. It had an electric pump, and the only problems we had were when an earwig crawled into the control box and shorted out the system, or when the PH balance got a little off and we had to chlorinate the water for a day to kill the sulfur smell. I’m sure some of my readers have similar stories. But can you imagine what it would be like if you had to search all day just to find a water supply, no matter if it was safe to drink or not? Worldwide 800 million people do not have access to clean water and 2.5 billion have nowhere safe and clean to go to the toilet.
